Red line

Catherine Kalcum "catiebug", Amazon
11 March 2013
  • Summary: I would have given it a higher rating cause it was very easy to use but it left a red line down the middle of each slide that I scanned.

Mid quality scanner

Denis Kavemeier, Amazon
26 January 2013
  • Summary: I purchased this scanner because of its stackable slide loader. That was a disappointment. The slides often stuck in the scanner, slowing down the process. The scanning procedure is not intuitive, resulting in missed or duplicate scans. The viewing screen cannot be adjusted, so can only be viewed from a straight on angle. The 5 megapixel scans result in scans that lack clarity.

Cheap scanner with inadequate software. Sorry I purchased this.

ponycardave, Ebay
10 September 2011
  • Summary: While it does convert slides to digital format, output has too much blue tint. Color controls are grossly inadequate to get a good correction. Rather cheaply made (one of the doors broke off during the first usage). Tech support is also inadequate. Would not recommend this if you want quality reproductions.

Disappointed

mls, Amazon
6 March 2011
  • Summary: I was excited to use this slide viewer and thought I was going to save my childhood memories onto a dvd. It was very easy to use, but when I veiwed the slides, the picture on the viewer was very hard to see who was in the picture. I hooked it up to my computer hoping to have a better quality picture with no luck. I've tried numerous slides of different subjects and they all were difficult to see.

requires too much adjustment

Amazon
4 June 2010
  • Summary: It's going back after an earnest attempt to use it. 1) The installer instructions did not work as written. That's a minor nit, but it's also a warning of problems to come. 2) I was unable to use any scanner other than the arcsight included software. the other drivers all returned black images. 3) I calibrated several times but the white balance, brightness and color settings were way off.

Easy to use, marginal image quality

Amazon
4 June 2010
  • Summary: Unlike some of the reviewers, I had no problem setting up either the hardware or software. However, the current device driver doesn't allow for manual adjustments, so light areas tend to be burnt out, which can't be compensated for using Photoshop or its equivalent. If this doesn't bother you, fine, but otherwise I'd recommend the CanoScan 4400F.

Okay-but I had a better idea!

Meribeth Ezell, Amazon
12 April 2009
  • Summary: This product worked okay, but took forever. I was much happier with the quality when I used our old slide projector to cast the images on a white wall and then took a picture of them with my digital camera in twilight mode. Was so much faster and worked as well or better! Save your money!

Works great on PERFECT slides, but not otherwise

Mutts202, Amazon
1 March 2009
  • Summary: I tried this on some slides from the 1970's. Although the slides looked great when viewed against a light source, the scanner would wash-out light-colored slides and darken + blur darker-colored slides. If the slide was perfectly in the middle for brightness, it would scan great. So I only had a 33% success rate on my slides, even though they were good if viewed in a slide viewer or projector.
